Pigsaw Janet's neurotic pop show fuses pop, punk, rock, y'alternative, and some neat Latin grooves into one very distinctive package. This band's refreshing tendency to experiment can lead to a variety of oddities that borrow from such early experimental Einsteins as Frank Zappa, as well as the contemporary theatrics of more current misanthropes such as Ween. Pigsaw Janet's consistently crooked rhythms and bone jarring breaks entice and tease the listener while at the same time revealing some quality musicianship. At the heart of the bands subversive, but catchy sound, lays the group's youthful and inquisitive lyrics. Absurdly hilarious and socially aware, the group hummable vocal lines ring of classic geek rock stars such as They Might Be Giants to Dead Milkmen. Add that to enough pop chops to capture the fancy of any mainstream rock listener and you've got one helluva show. From Psychedelics to Psychotherapy, Pigsaw Janet has it covered.
PressReviews: "Pigsaw Janet is one of those bands that couldn't be normal if they tried--not that they have tried. The band takes a penchant for spastic pop arrangements and marries it to a predisposition for zany lyrics, the result being what they themselves call a somewhat neurotic blend. Despite this tendency for a very left-of-center approach, the band has pop chops to burn. Sometimes those chops come through in a surprisingly straightforward way, such as on the song Dirty Mind, which brings together all of the band's neurotic qualities into a package that could get even the most mainstream of rock fans dancing."
